Before IIWW in Gdansk were only two polish facilities - military station on Westerplatte and Polish post office. After the German invasion of Poland, the German army attacked the office of Polish Post in Gdańsk, they could not capture over many hours. In the end, they set fire to the building forcing the Polish people to leave the building. All... More

During the outbreak of WWII, a small group of Polish Army and secret services put up a spirited but ultimately ill-fated resistance in this post office. The post office/Museum is some of the few sites where the Polish forces defended against Germany during WWII. A small but detail exhibition shows the historical tension and significance of the tension that existed... More

This museum is housed in the large old post office in Gdansk and whilst the exhibition is small, it is very moving and gives an insight into the plight of the Postal workers trying to defend their country. Information is available in English and there is a beautiful and thought provoking monument outside the museum. The entrance fee is minimal... More

A very small museum but one dedicated to the brave postal workers who saw it as their duty to stand up to the invading forces and defend their country. Very moving as you know what the outcome was and that real people suffered and died.

This little 2 or 3 room museum in the old Post Office building (still a Post Office) and the monument outside gave a really clear picture of the importance of the Polish post office's place for the Polish people in Danzig in providing a link to Poland and the heroic fight to try to resist German occupation. A highly recommended... More

Walking the back streets, we stop to see this huge statute. Hit "what's near me" on TA and Wa La the Polish Post Office. Not sure i would have gone there otherwise. Wow what mistake that would have been. It's well done and tragically shows the horror of war and brave people making the ultimate sacrifice.

September 1, 1939 marked the start of WWII in Danzig when German troop attacked both Westerplatte and the Post Office in the early morning hours. Civilian postal workers were able to hold off the Germans for 15 hours until their situation became hopeless and they surrendered. Fifty-five Polish workers died either in the defense of the building or were later... More

We did not go into the museum here but did go into the eerie courtyard where the postal workers were shot in 1939. A must see in the city. The monument outside is also worth seeing
